Roger's bass all bluff...

Scott Smith of Hawaii: "Roger Waters said in an interview in Musician Magazine (12/92) that 'I was never a bass player; I never played anything.' What exactly does he mean?  I also read that Dave played bass on some of the songs. Is this true?"

By his own admission Roger did not play much bass on studio recordings, such duties usually being carried out by Dave.  In a separate but equally revealing interview, Roger admitted that most of his live playing is "bluff".  As noticed by more than a few attendees of those earlier concerts, Roger would casually saunter over to Rick's organ with Rick twiddling on the keys to tune the guitar for Roger.
